phase of the so-called big deal in the budget. we're of the view that just as it took during the clinton administration, it didn't happen in one fell swoop. the economy in great shape and move toward a balanced budget. it started off in three phases. it started off with president bush's actions, the first president bush in terms of taxation before president clinton took office. and then the actions the president took in 1994 and then in 1997. well, we think there is a third phase here that can set our country on a path that will allow us to get our debt to g.d.p., our deficit to g.d.p. down around 3%, which is the basis of all economists left, right and center all agree on the areas we can begin to grow as a country. and as my grandfather used to say with grace of god and goodwill of the neighbors, cooler heads will prevail now between now and the time we deal with the debt ceiling and we may meet the goal which we set out to do, which is to have roughly a $4 trillion cut over 10 years in the long-term deficit and to put us on that path. talk didn't come here to about any of those import

-called big deal and the budget. we are of the view but just as it took during the clinton administration, it didn't happen in one fell through to get our economy in great shape and move towards a balanced budget. it started out for three phases. started off with president bush's actions. first president bush in terms of taxation before president clinton took office in the action the president took in 94 and 97. well, we think there is a third phase here they consider country on a path that will allow us to get our debt to gdp, deficit to gdp down around 3%, which is all economists are training center greer that areas we can begin to cruise the country and as my grandfather used to say that the grace of god and goodwill of the neighbors, between now and the time we deal with the debt ceiling, we may very well be able to meet the goal we set out to do, which is to have roughly $4 trillion cut over 10 years in the long-term deficit and put us on that past. i didn't come here to talk about any of this important subjects today because as important as they all are today we have a mortgage and
, participate and give back to the latino community. and we saw beau biden, and chelsea clinton, who talked about her father making martin luther king jr. a day of service. and what is he feeling, going through this time as he prepares to take the oath of office once again. and what would it be like to actually have martin luther king jr.'s bible, as well. had a chance to talk to her, there are a couple of things she said. >> there is nothing quite like that first time when you walk out and you see the mall is full of people who come from all over the country and the world to celebrate your first inauguration. so that was historic. we have been through a challenging four-year period. he has been very emotional about the campaign and all of the young and older people who have just rolled up their sleeves and worked so hard to get him reelected for a second term. so i think it will be a deeply emotional moment. >> there is criticism about his new cabinet. if you look at cia, secretary of defense, state and treasury, all white men. what does he need to do moving forward so that there are more
to other nations, look in that liberal democrats such as hillary clinton in kosovo, serbia and also neocons in the invasion on iraq and most recently the globalized, obama and the invasion of libya. so what my question is, here we have the united states denying the sovereignty of other nations and that i think is a problem of the two parties, both which are socially were parties. >> okay, in my book i distinguish between sovereignty in general, which is westphalian sovereignty, which would be the sovereignty of the burmese junta are any autocratic state and democratic sovereignty, which i call american, but there are other democratic sovereignty states. i make that distinction in the democratic sovereignty is more greater moral authority and sovereignty in general. so the cases you're referring to are in most cases overthrowing autocratic sovereignty. this is also a policy question. at that concerns me with the regime questions of a political science professor, liberal democracy and clinical science are two types. one is regime to close the type of government you have in the form goes to yo
